As usual the place was packed with enthusiastic diners but as always the service was good and the staff extremely polite and friendly. A couple of pre - dinner drinks in the comfortable lounge followed by delicious starters and fantastic main courses. It was so enjoyable that I felt obliged to thank the chef - I think more people should as he really kows his stuff! Very reasonable bill for the standard of cuisine - hardly surprising that this place is so popular. Booking is a must if you don't want to be disappointed. We''ll be back!
